My Students

A few weeks ago I found out that my district will be on complete Distance Learning. Many of the students usually get materials from the school and I ask parents to buy some supplies for school, but this new school year is going to be different. They will not be returning to school. Since many come from low-income families, I want them to still be all the materials they need without having to stress about money.

My Project

We are going to be doing Distance Learning for this upcoming school year. During this summer break, I have been attending many online teacher development programs and been searching for tools to use while online teaching.

Unfortunately, most programs I've seen are for iPads, a tool that I don't have.

I want to be ready and want to have the right tools to start planning and delivering lessons in this new school year. I will be using this iPad to deliver fun and engaging Math and Language Art lessons.

While still in summer break I will continue to explore new programs and apps that will help me in this new era of teaching online. If I'm ready to teach, my students will be ready to learn.
